Ballot Marking

A Universally Usable Election Experience

Smartmatic is modernizing the election experience with a new ballot marking device (BMD) that is VVSG 2.0 compliant and fully accessible. It allows all voters of all abilities to easily make their selections, review the ballot, correct errors if needed and print a human-readable, paper ballot.

The hardware of Smartmatic´s BMD is based on Los Angeles´ innovative voting machine. Smartmatic has been LA County´s partner in modernizing their elections since 2018. We are licensing the hardware from LA, so our Smartmatc BMD leverages all the benefits of IDEO´s design and LA VSAP´s voter-centric hardware. It has one of the largest touchscreens in the industry and is powered by our new intuitive software.
